Cass, this is wonderful. I love how accessible your poems are and how resonant. Lots of skill here. "Wherever you go, there you are" explored with grace.

Thank you for reading, Kyla.

I like my poems to have at least one level that's readily apparent on the first read or two. Someone told me once I had a talent for the obvious -- though I'd say it's more a penchant.

Really great poem. Excellent.

Thank you so much, Trish.

Minor bit of trivia -- the first stanza of William's The Girl in the Golden Hour (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?310413-The-Girl-in-the-Golden-Hour) set off the stream of musing that led to this poem (and of course the fact that I'm currently packing for and planning a trip). Not that William's poem has squat to do with me or with packing for a trip, or indeed has much at all in common with my final poem, but "she runs from her sundry monsters imagined" struck a chord in me that eventually brought me here.

I love when poetry inspires more poetry.
Cool bit of trivia. :)
